For now, Coda remains open. Unless advised otherwise, one-to-one lessons, group lessons and groups are going ahead as normal.
Based on government advice, anyone over 70, anyone with underlying health issues that places them at risk of the virus or anyone who is pregnant should be particularly cautious and we expect many people to choose not to visit Coda.
To keep in touch, we plan to start a weekly podcast series and will be posting frequent updates – please check our website and social media pages regularly for the latest information.
Please follow government guidelines, most importantly: if you have any of the symptoms of Covid-19 (dry cough, high temperature, shortness of breath), please DO NOT attend your lesson, course or group. Any student who has ANY flu-like symptoms should NOT come to Coda.
Our proactive approach to keeping our students and teachers safe includes the following measures:
To reduce social interaction and minimise contact, we recommend a ‘drop and go’ system to minimise the number of people waiting in the Coda café. Please help us by not waiting inside whilst your child’s lesson takes place. If possible, please wait in your car or run alternative errands.
We will be asking all students to wash hands for 20 seconds on arrival at Coda Music Centre. Handwash and handtowels are available.
Staff will be reducing contact – there will be no handshakes, hugs or hands-on corrections and staff will be maintaining a distance from students while learning.
We are taking extra precautions with cleaning, providing access to hand sanitiser gel where possible and ensuring toilets are kept clean and well-stocked with soap and toilet paper.
We have clear signage on site to remind everyone of the need to wash hands frequently and thoroughly.
It is important to cover the mouth when coughing or sneezing (with tissues being disposed of immediately afterwards), and sanitise hands afterwards.
We will continue to follow the advice we receive from Public Health England.
Please keep well in these extraordinary times.
